Young girl does Mendelssohn: fluid arpeggio
     Rivers of music cascade from the keys.
Dreamy she sways while soft ripples of melody
     Rise and subside in the musical seas.

Next it's a grudge-match: Tchaikovsky meets pianist!
     Violent struggles, attacks and decays.
Snap-tendon snake-strike blows pummel the ivories,
     Hammer-clavier fights for each note he plays.
